The other half has been honing her photographic skills on my wee 9T.

Nice bike (I had a lot of fun riding one of them last year), and I particularly like the second photo with the shaft of light coming from the top-right - very arty.

So, heat-wrap exhaust downpipes or not? Just a cool look (personal taste thing), advantages and disadvantages? Maybe a banter topic.

The bike came with the headers wrapped and I am giving consideration to removing the White wrap and applying more (of a darker colour) due to the condition of the roads up here and all the sh@te which will get chucked up. Had all the bikes "ACF'd" last week also.

The bike originally came with knobbly tyres too and had been shown as a semi scrambler type by the dealer at the end of last year. I saw no need to keep the tyres on her but I do feel that the wrap is/will serve a purpose.

Very nice Colin, much better without the knobbly tyres. Do you get any storage space under the little seat hump?

Cheers,

Paul
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Yes, the vertical section at the front of the hump pops off and there is a very small "cubby hole".

I had not taken such a short sighted view of the excellent photographs - I was more concerned about the wayward bushes in the background that look as if they need pruning !! :D

Bike looks great.

Yes, she is honing her skills. She has recently completed a degree in Commercial Photography and wants to persue land-scape work.

The sun was out that day between 10.08 and 10.13am :)

I do like that upswept silencer.
It's a modern design that seems to suit the bike well.
Still hate the bandages though.
Sorry
